TO COMMEND AND CONGRATULATE RONALD G. "BEN" BENJAMIN, ASSISTANT TO THE SERGEANT AT ARMS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES FOR HIS DEDICATED THIRTY-ONE YEARS OF SERVICE TO THE STATE, HIS COMMUNITY, AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Whereas, George Washington Benjamin and Mildred A. Corbitt met and fell in love. They were wed on July 3, 1952. Their union produced three children. One was the very handsome baby boy, Ronald George Benjamin; and
Whereas, Ben, a lifelong resident of Columbia, was a student at Carver Elementary and then W. A. Perry Middle School. He was a very popular student at C. A. Johnson High School and graduated in 1971; and
Whereas, on February 4, 1970, while still in high school, Ben began working for General Services after school. After graduating in 1971, he became a full-time employee with the South Carolina House of Representatives. He has worked under the leadership of five Speakers: Solomon Blatt, Rex Carter, Raymond Schwartz, Robert J. Sheheen, and the present Speaker, David H. Wilkins; and
Whereas, on February 24, 1983, Ben and the former Ginger Gilyard were united in marriage by the Rev. Leroy Cain, former Assistant Sergeant at Arms for the South Carolina House of Representatives. Upon this union, Ben and Ginger were blessed with a son, Anthony Raheem Benjamin; and
Whereas, Ben is a wonderful son, husband, father, and friend who always puts family first. He is a great conversationalist and offers great opinions; and
Whereas, Ben loves sports and racing and goes whenever he has the opportunity. He also likes fishing, cooking on the grill, and his all-time favorite thing to do is barbecuing. He also enjoys basketball and football on Sunday with his mom. He is a member of Zion Pilgrim Baptist Church, where the Reverend Leroy Cain is Pastor; and
Whereas, as a member of the Sergeant at Arms' staff, Ben has proven to be a loyal, trustworthy, and dependable employee. Punctuality, confidentiality, excellence in service, attention to detail, and a friendly smile are Ben's trademarks; and
Whereas, he has worked with the State for 31 years and 6 months. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina hereby commend and congratulate Ronald G. "Ben" Benjamin, Assistant to the Sergeant at Arms of the South Carolina House of Representatives for his dedicated thirty-one years of service to the State, his community, and the House of Representatives.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Ronald G. "Ben" Benjamin.
